Downhill/Trail magazine dirt check out Raceface's Six C cranks lets see what they have to say:

These could well be the XTR killers. Sublimely crafted, they aslo claim to be the lightest and strongest carbon all-mountain crank on the market, weighing in at 750g with 22/32/44 chainring szies. More than that, Raceface say that they are the first to produce a hollow carbon crank that has a highest strength to weight ratio than any Shimano AM or XC product. Obviously this is a big talk, but we are super keen to get riding on the SIXC as it is specifically produced for the 5-6inch travel market.

What else? Well the arms are made in Canada, different I guess, and 3mm of chainline adjustment means you can line up even the most difficult frame designs. They come with the Raceface bottom bracket, which in itself offers total detail on spacers you should be using. Thorough. We have bolted them up to 1x10 and are currently on the hill protecting them with rubber end caps that come as part of the kit. At over five hundred pounds they are pretty expensive, but I believe they are worth it as they enable you to build a super strong endure race bike for less weight. 170mm or 175mm, with a huge range of chainring sizes, but come on, it has to be single up front.
